About ten years ago I attended a course on Chinese Brush Painting. This print is inspired by the work I did then. It is a single layer, embossed Linocut. The embossing is made by pressing damped paper into the the lino which has been rolled with Ink. It is one of a trio of designs the others being ‘Waders and Willow’ and ‘Fish and Fronds’. They are made in three colour ways – Delft Blue, Celadon Green and a blended mix Azure/Aqua reflecting some of the colours found on Chinese Ceramics. The print is on Somerset Satin White paper.

My prints are made in very small editions; Bird and Blossoms: Delft – 3 (1 available), Celadon 4 (1 available, Azure/Aqua 2 (1 available)

About Judith

I have been interested in art since childhood and have taken courses in painting and sculpture. In 1997, at the age of 53, I joined the year twelves at the school at which I taught Biology to take A level Art. Buoyed up by the success of this I decided to take a course in Printmaking – something I had never done before – at the University of Hertfordshire . I was hooked from the first day. 22 years later I am still enthralled by the variety of techniques and the effects that can be obtained. Practically there are difficulties; the courses are limited to term times; I can only go on one day a week; while preparatory work can be done at home there are no facilities for acid baths, aquatint boxes, fume cupboards and 3 different types of presses; you can get horribly messy. I love it and am longing to get back when the studios are open again
